      CO: $22.55 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 18, 3B: 8, AF: 3.0, Hands: 77

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP with 9 :club: 8 :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.75, SB calls $0.65, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.50) Q :diamond: 7 :spade: 9 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($2.50) A :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $1.00, SB folds, Hero calls $1

      River: ($4.50) T :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      F: Bet since our opponent's check/folding ranges have decent equity against us.

      Also, 98 allows us to hit two-pair or trips which is good since our opponent's will mostly be calling with Qx or draws.

      Hey Raknyo,

      Preflop is fine.

      Agree with flop comments. Would definitely just cbet here. Your hand is not strong enough that you want to give a free card to two opponents, but not weak enough that you want to be just check/folding.

      Not a huge fan of turn check/call. Would probably check/fold. Might be ok to bluff turn, but mainly just check/folding here.
